Calling all creatives! Get your design hat on – there is €10,000 (and Champagne) at stake.

Champagne house Veuve Clicquot has launched The Re-Creation Awards, an international competition in which members of the public are invited to submit their own Veuve Clicquot Mailbox gift box designs for the chance to realise their creation, as well as pocket a lovely cash sum. The American mailbox-style gift box was inspired by Madame Clicquot’s archived letters to her clients.

The winner will have their design turned into a 2015 limited edition mailbox that will see worldwide distribution, and which will be unveiled at Milan Design Week. They will also receive €10,000 and be featured in Wallpaper* magazine. The winner will be chosen from a pool of 20 finalists who will all be flown to Hotel du Marc, Veuve Clicquot’s hotel in Reims, France.
